Week 13 of the NFL season is upon us and with it the DraftKings Millionaire contest. This $20 slate has a prize pool of $3.25 million, with a cool million going to the winner. And, as always, you can expect the winning lineup to have some form of a stack. Let’s take a look at the best stacking options on the slate:
Las Vegas Raiders vs. Washington Football Team:
QBs Derek Carr ($6,000), Tyler Heinicke ($5,600); RB Antonio Gibson ($5,700); WR Hunter Renfrow ($5,800), Desean Jackson ($4,200), Terry McLaurin ($7,400), TE Franklin Moreau ($2,700), Logan Thomas ($4,000):
This is a terrific stacking game in that you can build any number of combinations within teams, with different bring-backs, and still likely come up with a low-owned combination capable of putting up big numbers in a game with underrated shootout potential. You can throw on both teams and run on the Raiders, so a Raiders passing stack with Gibson or a Washington passing stack with Renfrow, it all looks good, and outside of McLaurin, is a salary-saving bonanza.
Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions:
QB Kirk Cousins ($6,500), RB Alexander Mattison ($7,600), Jamaal Williams ($5,400), WR Justin Jefferson ($8,200), Adam Thielen ($7,300):
I have a feeling that the elevated prices on the Vikings side are going to keep ownership down here, and that’s fine with me considering the value options on the board. If it appears Mattison’s ownership is going to be through the roof, I would use the passing trio as leverage, but I’m actually not sure that will be the case, so I would consider a Cousins/Mattison stack and soak up all the touchdown equity. Either way, I’m happy to bring it back with Williams, who will be chalky but has a tremendous chance for a big number with all the volume coming his way.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta Falcons:
QB Tom Brady ($7,200), WR Mike Evans ($6,700), Chris Godwin ($6,600), RB Cordarelle Patterson ($7,000):
Hey, maybe Leonard Fournette is the new Jim Brown and he’s going to get 100 yards and three touchdowns every week. Or maybe the Bucs will do what they did in Week 2 and bludgeon Atlanta with the pass, as Brady/Evans/Godwin combined for 70 DK points. I’m going to go with the latter here and hope the combined stinker last week drives away the haters. Cordarelle Patterson is back and looking great as usual, so he’s an ideal bring-back here.
